The bell tower of Wait Chapel rises over the Wake Forest campus at sunset.

The Wake Forest campus has earned not only the love of thousands of alumni but also national acclaim for its beauty and architecture. Continually but responsibly updating to meet the needs of a changing world, it retains much of its feel from 1956 when it reopened after moving 100 miles east from its original location in Wake Forest, N.C.

Today, it is a home of academic inquiry and a source of community engagement consistent with the University’s motto, Pro Humanitate. 

And it’s pretty stunning in any season.
